Girl, born March 2008
Diagnosis: Down syndrome
Update from a family who met her in Feb 2012:
Amanda would do best in a family with older children or no children – she does not interact well with or like younger children. She would rather play by herself.
She loves her caretakers and likes to sit in their laps to play. She likes individualized attention and has a fit if the caretakers pay any attention to the other children. She likes to help clean and dust. She loves the vacuum cleaner and figured out how to turn it on by herself. She loves to be tickled and will laugh when you do so. She laughs when you throw her up in the air or dip her head back. She likes to throw balls. She loves to eat bread.
She’s in a good orphanage. She seemed like a very sad, lonely little girl. It broke my heart. We had to tickle her and do the things I mentioned above to get a smile or laugh from her. I saw a beautiful light deep within her and she needs a home very badly. She will do so well with a family that has the time and attention to really work with her. She will be a life changer.
Amanda’s grant of $3347.35 has been gifted to Davis.
